Publix Super Markets: great for deli sandwiches. Bad for gay employees.
That's according to the Human Rights Campaign and several local LGBT activists. Publix does not provide benefits to domestic partners, they point out. Nor does it have non-discrimination policies in place to protect LGBT employees.
"I think it's still 1965 in their eyes," says David Cary Hart, a retired CEO of Drake Business Schools and LGBT activist. "They have absolutely no sensitivity to this issue whatsoever."
